nothing then we go off that cliff. if we do nothing then current law requires all those rates to go up. that may be what "the wall street journal" is referring to, the simple fact that a default operation with no intervention by congress will result in a rate increase. >> they're also -- they are also clearly saying that if republicans can negotiate a deal in which rates went up somewhat but not all the way back to the 39.6 top rate under president clinton that they would deserve credit for doing that. they seem to be suggesting you would be increasing rates somewhat and. do you think that's an idea that will take root among senate republicans? >> perhaps so. i haven't seen the editorial. i don't know specifically beyond what you've described what they're saying. >> there is room, there, you think, for raising rates? not as much as letting the bush tax rates expire completely and closing loopholes, you think that might be fertile ground, is that what you're saying? >> i don't think that's a good idea. it's a horrible idea to raise taxes on anyone. for rates to go up in this economy is

wearing? let's talk about this controversial law in florida. we talked about it before in the trayvon martin case. it's the stand your ground gun law. might be put to the test again this time. this time a murder suspect claims that he was threatened but there are lots of questions. michael dunn's attorney says he asked four african-american teenagers in an suv to turn their loud music at a jacksonville gas station, says they hurled insults at him, then flashed a shotgun, and then dunn decided to defend himself, he shot into the suv eight or nine times. 17-year-old jordan davis was hit twice and killed. martin savidge is following those developments from our headquarters in atlanta this morning. good morning, martin. >> good morning, soledad. the latest, by the way, is the fact that there's going to be a memorial service for that 17-year-old youth that's going to take place in florida tonight. meanwhile, the shooter in that case, that's 45-year-old michael dunn, he was arrested on saturday, had his first court appearance on monday. he entered a plea of not guilty to the charge of murde
